's speakers, building on the momentum of last night. how can you top michelle obama? >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. yeah. we were so young, so in love, and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down. because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. so in the end, for barack, these issues aren't political. they're personal. because barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity. he reminds me that we are playing a long game here. and that change is hard. and change is slow. and it never happens all at once. but eventually, we get there. we always do. we get there because of folks like my dad. folks like barack's grandmother. men and women who said to them

. take a look at what happened last night when first lady michelle obama took the stage at the dnc. >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. we were so young, so in love and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down, because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. >> so in love and so in debt. if you look at some of the headlines, just really quickly, there's the daily news. she's a hit. we saw the same headlines with ann romney as well. she was a hit, too, so how did michelle do since we're on the news, and what about ann romney and the effect of ann romney? i want to bring in margaret hoover who is also the author of "american individualism." i want you to talk about exceptionalism. give me the rundown and how you think michelle obama's speech went over last night and then we'll get to ann romney as well. >> look, first lady obama was a huge hit, and, you know,

[ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g

. it sounds a little bit like michelle obama's speech when she tried to link policy and the person. so this is also a guy joe biden, the vice president who's beenn on some of these decisions, he had a famous phrase which i guess we can't repeat on television to describe when health care passed. what's interesting about this through the prism of joe biden is this is a man who has not ruled out a 2016 run. so a lot will be looked at in this speech. this has been a man who's been quite loyal to president obama, done him a lot of go ahead. he has gone off the reservation as we say a couple of times. but he has done what they've asked of him. and, you know, the question is what happens next? over the next four years. we saw the powerful speech from bill clinton. and of course if you talked to folks out here after bill clinton last night, who do they all want to ask about? hillary clinton. it sets up a really interesting dynamic of a sitting vice president who's been very loyal to this president and of course hillary clinton who said she doesn't want to run. but certainly joe biden has said
, ann romney was an asset. michelle obama, who was polarizing in the first campaign, she said a few things, she probably didn't mean them the way they came across, but at one point she said i've never been more proud about my country. she has redeemed herself. republicans concede this point with her work with military families. >> i think both of these women had a job and i don't know why it's always the woman's job to humanize the husband. but be that as it may. but they had to kind of lift the veil, if you will, talk about who their husbands really are as the chief character witness, which wives are. >> they also talked about the choices that they have. they also talked about making sure that you don't slam the door behind you. when you moved up to the next rung of laer of success and we're all in this together. michelle obama especially, the first lady talked about an appeal to moms across the country. >> i thought they were both terrific. they're both a great credit to their husbands and families and to their country. are we ending on a point of consensus? i think we are. thank
. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. >> mayor villaraigosa, the crowd went wild, look at you. you're still basking in it as well. it's no secret the republicans have said that might be their secret weapon because it might be hard to follow and it also might remind people that president obama is not president clinton. your thoughts? >> actually, it's going to be an absolute assistance to the president. this was a shot in the arm that was a rocket launch, if you will. president clinton is not just a great orator, he's a great teacher. in many ways, it wasn't just a great speech. it was a very simple explanation of how we got here, the free fall that we were in as an economy, what president obama did to put the brakes on that free fall. and i thought it was an amazing, amazing speech. you know, the fact is, you guys have been talking a lot about enthusiasm and whether or not it was absent. we saw it on tuesday with michelle obama. we saw it last night with president clinton. we saw it when the two of them came together. let me tell
it the walkthrough. they get to practice a bit on the the teleprompter. you see that to the side of michelle obama. reading off of a teleprompter is an unnatural act. it's not easy to do. you have to move your head back and forth and keep following along and engage the audience at the same time, which is not easy, and engage the television audience. she's getting applause right now. >> and she's practicing a little bit. as important as the reception she gets for the 20,000 or 25,000 delegates and guests inside the arena, what's sho much more important is the reception sh gets from the 40 or 50 million viewers out there, many of them still undecided. >> and i think the bar is set pretty high for her. she now has this many years later quite a bit of public speaking experience. she tends to do pretty well, i think you'll agree, when she's speaking at events. large events, small events. thinks going to be one of the speeches most anticipated throughout this entire week. >> and ann romney gave a good speech in tampa. >> both will reach out to the all important women voters. president obama has a dozen
after her big speech, michelle obama touted what her husband has done for gay and lesbian voters. >> whether it's passing hate crimes legislation or speaking out for the rights of all americans to be able to do what barack and i did, and marry the love of our lives. >> reporter: brianna keilar, cnn, charlotte. >> so with their conventions now behind them, president obama and mitt romney, they are fine-tuning their strategies for the sprint to november. and sounds vying for your attention. so we invented a warning you can feel. introducing the all-new cadillac xts. available with a patented safety alert seat. when there's danger you might not see, you're warned by a pulse in the seat. it's technology you won't find in a mercedes e-class. the all-new cadillac xts has arrived, and it's bringing the future forward. throughout our entire lives. ♪ one a day men's 50+ is a complete multi-vitamin designed for men's health concerns as we age. ♪ it has more of seven antioxidants to support cell health. that's one a day men's 50+ healthy advantage. to support cell health. those little t

of things i would be listening for. finally, he has to bring the heart we saw michelle obama touch on. 2008, he was this candidate that in spired so much passion in people. that has waned is an understatement in four years, some people feel bitterly disappointed. can he reconnect and resell that brand and make people have that crush on him again they had in 2008. >> oh, the crush on obama. we'll look for those three points. we'll look for you as well, part of our primetime coverage of the democratic national convention. the whole thing kicks off 7:00 eastern, wolf blitzer, anderson cooper, the rest of cnn's political team. and 10:00 is the hour in which the president will officially accept his party's nomination for re-election. at midnight, piers morgan will put a wrap on the 2012 dnc for us on cnn. i will be watching. i hope you will be as well. >>> i want to take you back to mitt romney. moments ago he spoke about the democratic national convention. >> i think it will be interesting to listen to the president tonight. what i'd like him to do is report on his promises, but there are forgo

for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all
of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now

"newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with us. i'm carol costello. we begin this hour with president obama about to face two very different audiences. just minutes from now the president will address the united nations general assembly, but it's not just world leaders who will be listening to his speech about foreign policy. american voters may also tune in to his comments amid a spike in international hot spots. the latest from iran, they have reportedly test fired anti-ship missiles in the waters off its southern coast. it's possibly troubling for several reasons. according to an iranian news agency, the drill was close to u.s. led naval exercises in the persian gulf. the test comes amid spiking tensions with israel and mutual threats of military action, and it comes on a day when both presidenobama and the republican nominee, mitt romney, deliver key speeches on u.s. foreign policy. as i said, mr. obama is about to speak momentarily. mr. romney spoke in the las
